You couldn't make a better choice with better people. Small groups, fun time, very relaxing. Easy choice. Great way to start a day or an evening in Key West.

We booked the afternoon family cruise on January 25th. Though the schooner can carry 24 passengers, on that day it was only my husband and I and another couple, so it very much felt like a private charter. The captain and crew were friendly, answering any and all questions we tossed their way. They lowered a trawling net twice to get a good variety of sea life for us to look at and hold (if we wanted to). My husband helped with the sails and the trawling net--the only caveat was that he really should have worn gloves. He came away with some minor rope burns. But that did little to dim our enthusiasm for recommending a cruise! We'd happily do it again the next time we're in Ft. Myers Beach.

The view was beautiful, the crew was great and we really enjoyed helping put the sails up and down. It was a great experience. The peace and quiet of sailing was a great pleasure.

It was a great time out with 3 of the crew, attraction was very personal and memorable! We were the only ones out on the boat, saw a dolphin and we went on the sailing where we trolled a net for a while. We caught multiple sea urchins which were very cool, seaweed, an atlantic spadefish, a jellyfish that looked like seaweed and also taught me several things I never knew about fish before. They were very knowledgeable and allowed us to help them out with lifting and lowering the sails and educated us about sailboats! This was the first time I was ever out in a sailboat and was fascinating! It was a smooth sailing even though the chop was a couple feet!
